he Wedding Mannequin Challenge
We have all seen the mannequin challenge by now, being used in every facet of life that you can imagine. Sports teams, in classrooms, with families sitting around the dinner table for Thanksgiving and every other scenario you could imagine. The question is, does it have any practical use in the world of still photography? Please take a look at the two videos in the link.

JACKSON TERMINAL STYLIZED WEDDING SHOOT
Knoxville, Tennessee

I am so excited to share this stylized wedding shoot with everyone. My family moved to Knoxville Tennessee at the end of June of 2016 and in the following month, I was an exhibitor at the largest wedding expo in Tennessee, The Pink Bridal Show. It was at this show, where I met so many wonderful wedding professionals from the Knoxville area. I was amazed at how welcoming everyone was and how comfortable I felt in the wedding professional community in Knoxville. I thought the best way to network and begin my work in a new wedding market would be to put together a stylized wedding shoot with some of the top professionals at a premier downtown Knoxville wedding venue, the Jackson Terminal. This entire project took about two months of planning to put together and could not have been accomplished without the collaboration of so many talented individuals. I want to give a special thanks to the Jackson Terminal for letting us use their beautiful space for the photo shoot and a thanks to Stephanie Ritcher Photography for helping a new photographer to town and helping me put together this big project. I love the results of the photo shoot and think that it is some of my best work in the five years that I have been a professional photographer.

Ramble Creek Vineyards Stylized Wedding Shoot
Athens. Tennessee

This is the second stylized wedding shoot I have organized since moving to Tennessee in late June of 2016. My family moved to Knoxville Tennessee in June and in the following month, I was an exhibitor at the largest wedding expo in Tennessee, The Pink Bridal Show. It was at this show, where I met so many wonderful wedding professionals from the Knoxville area. I was amazed at how welcoming everyone was and how comfortable I felt in the wedding professional community in Knoxville. I thought the best way to network and begin my work in a new wedding market would be to put together a stylized wedding shoot with some of the top professionals. Ramble Creek Vineyards is a brand new venue, now in it’s second year of operation as a premier wedding venue. I loved the design, style and overall esthetic of the property and thought that it really fit my style and vision for a styled wedding shoot. My plan for this photo shoot was to have a Bohemian theme in terms of the bridal dress and appearance. With the help of White Lace and Promises, we were able to find a dress that fit the look we were going for. I owe thanks to all of the unbelievable wedding professionals that contributed their time and skills to this project. I could not have captures such wonderful images without everyone bringing their talents to the photo shoot. I want to give a big thank you to the owners of Ramble Creek Vineyard, Mr. & Mrs. Yates for their hospitality and use of their beautiful property as well as a thanks to Stephanie Ritcher Photography for helping me organize this photo shoot. I love the results of the photo shoot and hope you do as well.

SOUTHERN RAILWAY STATION ENGAGEMENT
Knoxville, Tennessee

Explore, Create and Inspire. That is my business tagline and with Emily and Daniel, we really did JUST that. We explored downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, venturing into places where we were able to capture some amazing images. It was very spontaneous and despite all of the planning that Emily had put in place regarding a location, we ended up randomly finding our way to the beautiful Southern Railway Station. I had been by the station previously and it caught my eye as I was driving to meet up. We stopped by the Jackson Terminal as well as the Knoxville Botanical Gardens in the final part of our engagement session. Emily and David were a pleasure to work with and here is a look at their engagement session.

World’s Fair Park, Knoxville, Tennessee

I absolutely love proposals. The spontaneity and forethought put into them is so much fun to orchestrate. Rik contacted me to put together his plan to propose to Penny, who he had been dating for nearly five years. World’s Fair Park Sunsphere has a special place in their heart and he wanted this location to be the backdrop for popping the big question. I met with Rik the day before the proposal and we scouted the area in search of the perfect location to capture the Sunsphere. The planning turned out fantastic and Penny did not have any idea what was going on. This day marked their five year anniversary and also coincided with a University of Tennessee football game. We had to navigate the traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian to pull this off before we lost the sunlight, but we were able to make it work. It all turned out perfect and more importantly, Penny said, “yes.” We took the opportunity after the big question to take about 10 minutes to take a few photos at the park, here is a look at their photo session.

I had the opportunity to explore a few different locations in Knoxville with Eileen & Aaron during their engagement session. We first stopped at Mead’s Quarry and were greeted by some fantastic fog hovering over the water at sunrise and were able to capture some amazing landscape images at the quarry. We explored a bit more at the quarry and then ventured downtown, stopping in front of the Tennessee Theater, First Baptist Church, Market Square, Art Alley, The Standard and various spots in Old City. It was so nice to have a couple that was willing to explore and be so adventurous. The session offered an eclectic range of images at the various spots we hit along the way. I look forward to working with Eileen & Aaron again on their wedding day, I hope you enjoy the engagement photos.
